BIG FUN to kick off the Holiday Season! 

Hello, Central Coast!  Looks like a great weekend with plenty to do! 

For starters, SLO Brew will be super fun tonight & tomorrow with a couple of great shows.  Tonight, the Young Dubliners will get the crowd all fired up, and warming them up will be local funmeisters Truth About Seafood.   For Friday night SLO Brew has the Dead Volts, and Saturday you can check out The Grouch & Eligh (of Living Legends) for their "Grouch Stole Christmas" show. 

Also - Songwriters at Play presents a BIG show down at the Shell Cafe in Pismo Beach:  A Tribute to Tom Waits!  It goes from 6:30-9:30 and features at least 8 acts.  Click here to get all the details. 

Saturday has a cool variety of stuff.   There's a fantastic jazz show at Unity Concert Hall as the SLO Jazz Federation presents Steel House.  This is a rare West Coast performance featuring three world class instrumentalists: Edward Simon on piano, Scott Colley on bass and Brian Blade on drums. Don't miss it, unless you're in the mood for blues - in which case you'll want to check out the SLO Blues Society's concert with Cafe R&B and Back Bay Betty.   Or, if you're in the mood for a little festivity and fresh air, you'll want to head out to Morro Bay and check out the Lighted Boat Parade.  You can check it from all the over the Embarcadero, but I'm recommending the Blue Sky Bistro at Marina Square, where you can have great beverages with a fantastic viewing spot. 

Sunday has some traditional Hawaiian Music with the new up and coming group Hu 'Ewa.  Check them out at the SLO Grange Hall. Also - if you happened to be out at the coast, stop by Baywood for Rod Baker's Glass Studio for a free demo and Holiday Open House.   Have fun out there, and be sure to learn more about all these happenings at our Upcoming Events page!
